The Bible: Ancient and Modern

Few other books are as ancient, yet as modern as this Book of all books—the Bible!

And did you know, even after thousands of years, the Bible continues to outsell other books?

Did you know it continues its influence through modern software, apps and on smartphones and tablets around the world?

And at the center of amazing advances in technology going back to the invention of movable metal type—the Bible was the first major book printed on the Gutenberg printing press in the 15th century!

And as a recent article in the Israel Ministry of Tourism points out, this innovation in technology resulted in a “rise in the literacy and education of common people—who for the first time—were able to read the Bible in their own language!“

Engage with the Bible—in its history, its narrative and its impact!
